Make An Appointment


A hair transplant can basically be categorized as a cosmetic procedure that allows an individual to get back the hair which he or she might have lost due to a number of reasons. Hair transplant procedures can mainly be divided into two types. Those types of hair transplant procedures are FUE transplants and FUT transplants. Going through either of these procedures can be a difficult experience for an individual. There is a lot of preparation which certainly goes into it and that can be more taxing than even the main procedure for the individual. However, what if you do not get your desired results after going through a hair transplant procedure? 

This is actually a very valid possibility. Just like any other cosmetic surgical procedure, there are certain risks and precautions which one needs to take before getting a hair transplant done. On top of that, there is always some scope for human error either on the part of the patient or on the part of the surgeon. This is why if one wishes to be fully prepared for getting a hair transplant then he or she should also know about the possible factors that can contribute to a bad hair transplant. In this article, we will discuss just that to help you in preventing bad hair transplant results.

Why Does a Bad Hair Transplant Occur?

To understand the answer to this question, we have successfully analyzed the results of different types of hair transplant gone bad experiences. Because of this, we have been able to narrow down the causes of bad hair implants to five major factors. Those five major factors are discussed below.

  • The Lack of Experience of the Surgeon

It is a commonly known fact that if we wish to be fluent or good at something then we need to constantly practice until we might feel comfortable in performing that task. This is also true for surgeons who have decided to pursue the field of cosmetic surgery. A hair transplant is a very meticulous and delicate procedure that requires one to not just have a steady hand but also have a good experience.

If a surgeon is inexperienced that he or she can easily get the grafting procedure wrong which could hamper the results of the entire hair transplantation procedure. Grafting is a very central step to the entire procedure which can be rather intricate. Hence, it is always suggested that if one wishes to get a hair transplant done then he or she should only approach an experienced medical expert.

  • Absence of Proper Post-Operative Care

Many patients think that just because they have gone through the hair transplant operation successfully then their work is done. Sadly, this is not true. When it comes to a hair transplant then, the post-operative care is just as important as the hair transplant procedure itself. This is why if an individual wish to get the best possible results from his or her hair transplant procedure then it is best for him or her to follow every single post-operative care instruction which was provided by the medical expert. This could help in avoiding the occurrence of bad hair plugs.

Further, it has been found that if one scrubs the area of the scalp where the hair transplant has occurred too much then that could adversely affect the survival of the grafts and the final outcome of the procedure. If one does not maintains proper hygiene then that can also cause some nasty infections. However, all of this can be avoided if an individual simply decides to follow the post-operative care instructions which he or she must have been provided by the surgeon.

  • Not Being an Ideal Candidate for the Procedure

Another common reason why one could experience hair transplant bad effects is if he or she is not an ideal candidate for the procedure. It has been mentioned before that there are many different types of hair transplant procedures. This means that there are different potentially ideal candidates for each of these procedures. This is why it is important for an individual to go through a consultation session before getting any hair transplant done.

During a consultation session, the medical expert would be able to identify the best-suited method for hair transplant depending on the overall health and medical condition of the individual. This is also one of the reasons why it is recommended that one should always be honest and forthcoming during a consultation session.

  • Existence of Dishonesty in Hair Transplant Clinics

Not all people working in the medical community are good and honest. This is a sad fact. However, there is a silver lining to it and that is that it is rather easy to find out who these dishonest members are if one knows what he or she is looking for. For example, one thing which one can do to check the credibility of any medical practice is whether they have all the required certificates and qualifications or not. The list of qualifications can differ from government to government and hence, it is advised that one should check the list of requires qualifications from an official government website.

Apart from that, one can also ask for contacts of references. These references can be contacted to learn about the kind of experience which they went through during a hair transplant from that particular medical practice or clinic. It is best for an individual to be very diligent when it comes to avoiding dishonest hair transplant practices. This would help an individual in increasing his or her chances of avoiding bad FUE hair transplant results.

  • Occurrences of Misunderstanding

It is important for an individual to consider the hair transplant surgery as not just a single step procedure but a process that consists of multiple steps or stages. This would allow the individual to understand that the actual surgery is just a part of the entire process. The rest of the process consists of post-operative care, the initial consultation, and the recovery phase. And sadly, there is a lot that can be misunderstood throughout this entire procedure. This could cause bad hair replacement results. Thankfully, these misunderstandings can easily be avoided if an individual is open and upfront with the medical expert. It is also best for the patient to ask the medical expert to repeat anything which he or she might not have understood. This would go a long way in avoiding bad FUE results.
